"Gathering eight books originally published between 1973 and 1996, the collection makes available and rejuvenates the work of this unjustly neglected poet, an important figure in the British Poetry Revival."

"The Magic Door is a cycle, a long poem with recurring themes and images, although each volume has its own particular focus, ranging across alchemy, geology, history myth and legend. Torrance’s unique poetic voice combines a Beatnik sensibility with a reverence for the radical sublime, influenced by the open field poetics of Charles Olson as well as by Ezra Pound and David Jones.
